Dotstar 2020 PCB Footprint

by chrisw63 on Sun Aug 02, 2020 11:06 am

I'm trying to make a custom PC board using Dotstar 2020s. The PDF datasheet shows the solder pad footprint for the 2020 Dotstars, but the measurements are blurry. Does anyone have a reference that has the PCB solder pad footprint for these tiny RGB LEDs?

Never mind! Sent a request to the manufacturer, and found that the APA102-2020 is End Of Life (not being produced any more, but still have in stock). It's being replaced by the LC8822-2020, drop-in replacement for the APA102. And, even better, it has a much clearer drawing to create a PC board footprint from. If anyone else needs it, here's the link to the page and PDF spec sheet:
